Hi,
I have submitted my sites URL to google about 36 hours ago, when I type full URL into google search bar it doesn't find it !
Is it still to early to expect it to be found ?
Does anyone have any tips on submitting websites to search engines to help find them ?
Thanks

Hi Edbr,
The site is now found on google but is not ranked very high, could you assist with help to move it up the list and give me help to achieve this, its all quite complicated but once I see the results in action can probably understand whats needed for the future ?

the site is at www.jsmobilebeautytherapy.co.uk

Thanks,
Nick C

First you need to identify what search keywords and phrases you're going to be targeting. Once you decide on those you can begin to formulate a plan for increasing your position in the search results for those pages.

SEO just takes time and hard work to be honest. There are other factors such as the age of the site that you will never control. Looks like you have used header tags and stuff already so I'd suggest going and listing the site with some other sites and see if you could exchange some links with other related businesses locally.

BTW, lose the green grocer's apostrophe...

Events & Party's should be 'Parties'.

Hi,
thanks for reply, I would like beauty, jsbeauty, northampton, beauty therapist, beauty therapy northampton that sort of thing so when typed into google etc the site is fairly near the top !
I have inserted meta tags etc in website, need to research this more, how's best to add sitemap to site, will this help ?
I think it's important to have Northampton in as this is the area that she covers !
It's complicated but once I have seen how it's done I think I will understand more !
Thanks for help,
Nick C

Hi
In my humble opinion, you haven't really made the most of the<h1> and <h2> tag.
My sites really make the most of these to say what the client does and where they do it, even replicating some of the important keywords/phrases from the meta tags. Also repeat them in the page content somewhere as well.
I see google checking my site every 12 days or so but if you look at the "cached" section of the google listing it will say when last visited.

Hi
In my humble opinion, you haven't really made the most of the<h1> and <h2> tag.

Made the most of the h1 tag as you have it twice in your page, apply the h1 tag one per page and use the other h# tags for your main headings.

<h1>Mobile Beauty Therapy for Northampton</h1>
<h1 class="title">Welcome to js beauty</h1>

My take on your site is that I am guessing you would like to do well when people search for "mobile beauty in northampton" I keep seeing "Mobile Beauty Therapy for Northampton", cant really see anyone searching for this. And "mobile beauty in Northampton" I know google will drop words like in, for but it will also recognise the full string/sentence.

In your title you have
<title>Beauty Therapy Northampton by jsbeauty</title>
Again I would use "Mobile Beauty in Northampton by jsbeauty"

Also you have wrote "I cover Northampton, Wellingborough and most of the surrounding areas",
write down what areas you cover dont expect google to work out all the surrounding areas and display your site if someone searches for "Mobile beauty in Wootton"

Like I said in another post I really cant see why you are doing this
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#manicure">Manicure</a></li>
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#pedicure">Pedicure</a></li>
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#waxing">Waxing</a></li>
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#tinting">Tinting</a></li>
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#eyelash">Eyelash Enhancing</a></li>
<li><a href="treatments/index.html#tanning">Spray Tanning</a></li>

Some people may disagree, please correct me if I am wrong folkes.

I would rather use
<li><a href=http://www.jsmobilebeautytherapy.co.uk/manicure.htm>Manicure</a></li>
and if you want them in a different directory why not just use
<li><a href=http://www.jsmobilebeautytherapy.co.uk/pages/manicure.htm>Manicure</a></li>

And also put links into your paragraph text
Whether you need a Manicure (http://www.jsmobilebeautytherapy.co.uk/manicure.htm), Pedicure, Waxing or just a Spray Tan before that important night out with the girls let me come to you at your convenience and save the trip to the salon !

So this will go again to your manicure page.

I may be guessing what keywords you want to use but if you intend to use the ones I already stated "mobile beauty in northampton" then have you thought about purchasing www.mobilebeautynorthampton.co.uk (http://www.mobilebeautynorthampton.co.uk) and 301ing your current domain name. Again it will help with relevance for both google and the user.

Like I said this is my own personal opinion, some people may have other views

Hope it helps

Bottom line is that your site lives on it's own little island, not really connected to the rest of the web, to put it that way.

I'm also going to go on a limb here and claim that you will never rank in any significance for keywords like 'beauty', 'northampton', 'beauty therapy' unless the web site's company becomes *really* big :) (and anything is possible!).

But, noone links to it, it's not very old, so Google probably thinks it's not very relevant for any of the keywords you mentioned, at all. Once the website becomes more known, your rank will get better. I really doubt a sitemap, or the HTML structure is going to change that.

If I were you I would focus on local marketing, newspapers, blogs. Support and work with your local community. Business after hours (if you have those over there), sponsor events. Once people start talking and writing about you, for you, you'll see things start rolling by themselves. Whatever you would normally do :) For online marketing, makes sure all your friends and customers knows how to get a hold of you on Twitter, FB etc, if they like to go there. Oh, and the web copy is uh.. I've seen better, let's put it like that..
